Tried installing Slimserver on my LinkstationII with Openlink
carefully following the advice from Marc Field. Haven't managed to
make it work and I broke something. I'm unable to get into the box
via Buffalo's web browser interface; just get a pink screen in the
browser with a message about a URL and cgi-bin and top.
I noticed during the tar of Perl 5.8.5 that all the files go into a
directory structure quite different from that mentioned in Field's
article thus the structures in his note about doing ln -s to allow
Slimserver to find Perl are wrong for the files I used. I tried to
second-guess what was necessary and I believe I broke the browser
interface. Everything else continues to work ok: file structure
visible in Windows, can telnet into the box as root.
Just can't configure the device anymore or add any new shares via the
Will I be able to reflash the box with Buffalo's own 2.05 and start
over or have I semi-bricked the thing?
